The powerful true story of three generations of marriage and infidelity. In this bluntly honest memoir, Ann Pearlman movingly recalls her experiences of the pain, wisdom and female strength that resulted from her father's and grandfather's adultery. Ann determined that her own marriage, when it happened, would be faithful and forever. In the 1960s, Ann fell in love with Ty, an African-American professional football player and artist. Over twenty-five years together, they obtained graduate degrees, forged dual careers and raised children. As a psychotherapist, Ann wrote a book on the joys of sexual monogamy and embarked on an author's tour, appearing on TV talk shows, including Oprah, as an expert on marriage. As the century drew to a close, Ann discovered her husband's affair with a married Japanese woman. Again, Ann was forced to revisit infidelity, an echo from previous generations.
